Dawn of the Dead

 (2004)

Dawn of the Dead Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

A re-envisioning of George Romero's apocalyptic horror classic. An unexplained plague has decimated the world's population--and yet, the dead aren't dying. They've become zombies, stalking endlessly in a quest to feed on the flesh and blood of the few remaining living. A ragtag group of desperate survivors in a Wisconsin town seek refuge in a large indoor mall, where they must learn not only to protect themselves from the ever-increasing zombie horde, but also to co-exist with each other as a last bastion of humanity. Sealed off from the rest of what used to be the world, the group uses every available resource, in their against-all-odds fight, to remain alive and human.

Dawn of the Dead Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Dawn of the Dead infests Blu-ray with a 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer. Detail is excellent in many scenes and the transfer often conveys a sharp, crisp image that pops right off the screen. Black levels are decent, if not a bit crushed, however. Dawn of the Dead features a distinctive color palette; the interior mall shots are sometimes a cold, somber shade of green, but the film takes on many other tones, too, from bright, natural exteriors to dim basements and garages, all running the gamut of visual styles. The film oftentimes alters drastically in its visual conveyance of the story. From scenes exhibiting extreme amounts of noise in dark, poorly lit locales, to bright, clean, eye-catching scenery that is nothing short of amazing, the film manages to keep viewers interested to see what sort of visual cues the film will take on next. There is sort of a processed, artificial look to much of the film which stays true to the editions I have seen before. The clean, steely look of the mall comes through fine, with plenty of eye-catching detail to be found. Grain and noise is seen aplenty, particularly over bright whites, and while some shots are clean, others are caked in speckles and other blemishes. Dawn of the Dead is a frustrating transfer at best; its wide array of color schemes, locales, and textures sometimes translate well to high definition, and other times make for a fairly nondescript experience. With its greater attention to detail, however, the transfer is still a solid step up from the standard definition DVD.


Dawn of the Dead Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As with most other Universal Blu-ray titles on the market at the time of this publication, Dawn of the Dead is an absolute blast to listen to, offering viewers a captivating DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Dialogue seems a bit low in volume at the beginning of the film, but no such anomalies were noticed once the film got going full-steam. The volume of sound effects is plenty loud, however, offering listeners an entertaining sonic siege on the aural senses. Surrounds are present and accounted for in nearly every scene. This track is a continuous bombardment of horror action, and it never shies away from exploding into a symphony of well-placed and expertly rendered sound. Bass is thunderous, providing a powerful workout for your subwoofer, through both sound effects and the film's dark, deep, harrowing score. Guns shots ring out loud and powerful with fine imaging and directionality, sounding full and fairly realistic. The track often creates an immersive 360-degree sound field that draws viewers into the film. Atmospherics are excellent. Music finds its way into the back channels and spreads nicely across the front. The soundstage also takes on an expansive feel as voices echo through the empty chambers of the mall, a great example being a dialogue scene in chapter 14. Dawn of the Dead hits all the right notes, and for a movie primed for a great soundtrack, this one does not disappoint.
